I still say if you need a license to fish, hunt, or conceal a gun...WHY don't we have some sort of parenting license?
Okay, maybe not really but this lady is a good argument for the need for one!
Don't frisk me, I am the weapon.

Police: Phoenix mom coached youthful armed robbers
"She was directing the males to go out and do the robberies to produce the funds, and she was making them feel guilty about the bills she had to pay."
PHOENIX (AP) - Police in Phoenix say they've arrested a woman accused of leading an armed robbery gang involving her 12- and 14-year-old sons.
Police say 51-year-old Cynthia White Roberson coached some of the four boys and three men who were charged with her. The suspects are accused of at least 20 armed robberies in Phoenix and Glendale since late April.
Police say Roberson lost her job six weeks ago and guilted her sons and some of the others into committing the robberies to pay for rent and a car loan.
Many of the robbery victims were also youngsters and were physically assaulted.
One 13-year-old victim was beaten up and forced to empty his pockets—which contained only an orange lollipop.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
What strikes me as odd and stupid is this, with people like this and others who are so creative in their means of breaking the law I'm thinking they could just as easily apply that energy to something good.

Sounds like she was setting up a little organized crime syndicate. +1 to the retroactive birth control idea.
